Mandatory Right to Work Posting Update

The federal Right to Work posting, issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency, updated Feb. 26, 2019. The last time the Right to Work/E-Verify posting updated was on Feb. 2, 2017.

What Changed?

The Right to Work posting was updated to reduce any unnecessary information and make it clearer for employees to understand the details of the posting. The layout of the poster was also slightly redesigned.
